Meditation: Exercise of the Mind

Exercise for our body is important, but so is exercise for our mind!“– Paul Ebeling

Studies show that some unconventional alternative mental health therapies help to improve emotional regulation, learning, cognition, and memory. And that yoga helps to slow down physiological arousal, allowing the practitioner to be more relaxed.

Meditation is one of the most recognized relaxation techniques. During stress, the hormones that prepare us for handling an emergency situation are continuously elevated.

Meditation helps to bring back the body’s systems and mind into sync.

Meditation helps to stabilize the heart rate and blood pressure. It helps to relax tense muscles and triggers your immune system.

Meditation helps you to face situations that commonly cause stress. This includes worry about the future illnesses and poor self-image.

So, find the time to take a yoga class, or try meditating before you go to sleep. Even if you do either for just a few mins a day, your mind will thank you. There are several meditation techniques that you can use. They include the:

  • Guided meditation
  • Qi gong
  • Transcendental meditation
  • Tai chi

Meditation helps us to live in the Eternal Moment and Tune out the Noise!

Have a healthy weekend, exercise your mind!
